Read the safety guidelines carefully as there are millions of members on the site and not much in the way of verification tools.
You can’t verify your identity with social media, phone or even email, and POF doesn’t do any background checks or manual verification.
If the other person agrees- a conversation will be started for you!
You can also check out the My Matches section for more targeted profiles which should suit you.
Founded in 2003, Plenty of Fish has been voted the largest free dating site in the world.
With over 100,000,000 members since it began, you can see why!
We recommend downloading the free POF app, which allows you to search and communicate free with other users on i OS and Android devices, and with limited functionality on Windows Phone too.
Over 80% of POF activity happens on a mobile device.
Others might need more thought, for example your intent on the site and whether you are interested in someone who has kids or wants them in the future.
There are also a few questions which may surprise you, such as whether your parents are still married. Try to fill in even the optional sections, which will help users get to know a bit of your personality and humor.
You will not be able to browse privately on the site, but you can block users if they have contacted you in the past.
This can be managed from your block list or their profiles.
Fill in your ideal first date, you never know-someone might decide to take you up on it!
